What is Diabetes

Diabetes is a systemic disease that occurs when your body does not produce enough insulin to process the glucose (sugar) in your bloodstream. Diabetes can lead to a range of health issues affecting your heart, kidneys, and even your eyes.

It also raises your chances of developing a range of eye diseases and conditions, which is why eye care professionals recommend patients with diabetes have annual eye exams.

Eye Diseases Related to Diabetes

Diabetic retinopathy occurs when high glucose levels in your bloodstream damage the blood vessels in your retina.

When these vessels are damaged, your retina may attempt to grow new blood vessels to help compensate and provide oxygen to your retina. However, these vessels are often quite delicate and can bulge or leak fluid or blood into your retina.

Diabetic macular edema is a disease that often occurs alongside diabetic retinopathy. After your retina attempts to develop new blood vessels, the fluids that leak may find their way under your macula, affecting your central vision.

Diabetes can increase your chances of developing cataracts, the clouding of the natural crystalline lens, resulting in dim, blurry vision.

Open-angle glaucoma is one of the most common eye diseases in the world. Currently, about 2.7 million Americans have open-angle glaucoma, and diabetes can nearly double your chances of developing it.

Open-angle glaucoma occurs when intraocular fluids build up in your eye, raising your intraocular eye pressure. This pressure can then damage your optic nerve and lead to vision loss.

How We Detect Problems Related to Diabetes

Fundus photography is widely used by eye care professionals to take highly detailed colored photographs of the back of your eyes that includes the retina, macula, and optic disc. Observing this area will help your eye doctor detect issues related to diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, glaucoma, and more.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans produce detailed cross-sectional images of your retina. OCTs are used to help observe the health of your retina and detect eye diseases.
